"It's too warm and beautiful hereabouts, even for a broken down old biologist like me, to keep from being out as much as possible. At least as often as the keepers will allow"

"Field trips my boy, field trips". That was a great quote you made awhile back. I could hear a Foghorn Leghorn voice with that one. Whenever you mention biology I'm reminded of my zoology prof. at Fullerton College in '86. He always wore a GD tour shirt on lab Fridays. You remind me of him. Good memories. I know this is facebooky, hope you don't mind, just thought Id mention it.
I saw you mentioned an upcoming knee surgury, best of health and recovery Will.

Go Titans!

Kind words; always recall a fellow b-ball player at Cal that was from SoCal, and he was rooting for you all in 78 when you almost went all the way...even brought me a tshirt the next year, though I hardly knew him...we played ball a few times, and it's no doubt the explanation for my sad state at this point. Trying to hold off another six months to see if some injections allow me to get a couple of yrs more before replacement. Thanks again.

Oh, and yeah--the kids always tolerate my 60s references, and allusions to the DEAD on field trips. I always ask the ones I get to know if they recognize mt girl and Jerry from the photo on my lab door, but no one does.

I never did ask the prof. about his concert days. Wish I had. He had posters in his office too. I was just too young and intimidated. That was a very stressful course, moreso for him than us Im sure. For some reason it was decided to combine 2 semesters of curriculum into one. A long-haired Deadhead adult was a very rare bird in those days and in that area. I bet he was a very cool fella on a personal level.

Yup, round-ball sure can play havoc on the knees. Cross-country and track in my case. I'm starting to feel the mileage in the pins these days. Good luck with the shots, they do wonders those days. I had one in the neck a year ago and it worked very well.
